What he is hiding from everyone around him is that he is actually recording an unspoken final goodbye to the people for whom he cares most. In fact, Barry is now in now dying from massive heart failure. Hysterical laughter follows Barry, his prophetic mom, Linda, and his sidekick, sister Aleacia, as they make a well-documented quest through the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. Meeting with doctors, nurses, and hospital staff, they retrace the agonizing and drastic steps they’ve taken to keep Barry safe from a heart that continues to fail. Near death, Barry reflects on the hand he’s been dealt and his miraculous medical successes, and he rushes to find his life’s purpose as he gets closer to the end of it. Attributing his past medical successes to the undying love of his faithful family and countless friends, Barry discovers the healing properties of love and laughter. Using this concept, he creates a foundation to raise money for families of ailing children so they can stay together in times of crisis. Barry, his family, friends, and doctors trace his journey through raw footage of his last surgery, home videos, and the one-man show he created, In My Own Words, as he hangs on with every breath to watch his dreams come true before it’s too late.
